Detailed Review of Realme TechLife Watch S100

Realme has established itself as a leading player in the Indian market, offering a diverse range of products from multiple brands including Realme, Realme TechLife, and Dizo. With the company’s robust research and development capabilities, sales and service network, and brand reputation in India, all the brands are benefiting under the Realme umbrella.

Realme TechLife, in particular, has an impressive lineup of products in India, ranging from vacuum cleaners to wireless earphones and smartwatches. These products offer a wide range of features, including heart rate and SpO2 tracking, as well as body temperature monitoring, making them highly functional and versatile. Overall, Realme’s commitment to innovation and quality is evident in the TechLife product range, making it a reliable choice for customers seeking quality tech products.

The Realme TechLife Watch S100 is an affordable smartwatch that boasts a 1.69-inch rectangular colour display with a resolution of 240×280 pixels and a rated peak brightness of 530 nits. Its plastic casing features thick borders on all sides, housing a single physical button on the right side. Underneath the watch, users can find the contact points for the magnetic charger, optical sensors for heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring, and a sensor for measuring body temperature. The single button on the watch can be used to control power, standby, and navigation, while the touch screen responds to swipes and taps for easy access to menus and device controls. Overall, the Realme TechLife Watch S100 offers an impressive set of features at an affordable price point.

The Realme TechLife Watch S100 is a lightweight and user-friendly smartwatch, weighing in at just 34g. It comes equipped with a 260mAh battery and various sensors, including an accelerometer, temperature sensor, and optical sensors for monitoring heart rate and blood oxygen levels. The device utilizes Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity and can be paired with the Realme Fit app, allowing for easy synchronization with your smartphone.

The realme TechLife Watch S100 is a smartwatch with a 1.69-inch (240×280 pixels) 218 PPI LCD glass colour touch screen and 2.5D scratch resistant glass. The watch features a smooth touch screen that is responsive and easy to use. It has up to 530 nits brightness, making it easily visible even in bright outdoor environments. The brightness level can be adjusted from 20% to 100% by swiping to the left or from Settings→Adjust Brightness. However, there is no auto brightness adjustment since it lacks an ambient light sensor.

The watch has a range of features accessible by swiping from the bottom, including body temperature measurement, workouts, activity records, heart rate monitoring, SpO2 monitoring, Sleep details, sports mode, activity, sleep, notifications and weather.

The realme TechLife Watch S100 uses the new realme Fit companion app on Android and iPhone, which is different from the usual realme Link app used by other realme Watch models. The home screen of the app displays activity details along with heart rate data, sleep data, blood oxygen record, and body temperature record. The sports tab shows workout details, while the device tab shows the battery status and allows you to customize the watch.

Overall, the realme TechLife Watch S100 is a great smartwatch with a large display and a variety of useful features. Its responsive touch screen and good outdoor visibility make it a great choice for fitness enthusiasts and anyone who wants to keep track of their daily activity and health data.

The Watch boasts a 260mAh battery and claims to provide up to 13 days of battery life, and after putting it to the test for a couple of weeks, I can confirm that it lives up to this promise. I only had to charge it once, a couple of days ago, despite using it daily for 40 minutes of run tracking, with brightness set to 3 indoors and outdoors, and minimal notifications enabled. However, it’s important to note that the battery life may differ depending on how frequently you use the display at higher brightness, how often you utilize the heart rate monitor during workouts, and how many notifications you have turned on.

What’s more, the realme TechLife Watch S100 comes with a magnetic charging dock that conveniently connects to a USB port on a PC or laptop or can be used with a power bank in low-power mode. Despite taking roughly 2 hours to fully charge from 0%, the watch’s nearly two-week battery life renders the long charging time irrelevant.

The realme TechLife Watch S100 is an affordable sports watch with 24 sports modes, catering to a wide range of fitness activities, including Outdoor Running, Walking, Outdoor Riding, Football, Mountaineering, Dancing, Yoga, and Basketball. The watch offers essential metrics like distance, calories burnt, and average heart rate for outdoor activities. However, the absence of GPS in the watch requires the phone’s GPS, which does not lock correctly. When you start your run directly from the watch, it doesn’t track routes accurately, and data is only based on steps, leading to about a 100m difference when compared to GPS watches. This is a common issue in budget sports watches.

The sleep tracking feature of the watch is decent and offers insights into light and deep sleep, as well as awake time. However, it does not track REM sleep. Additionally, the watch tends to record sleeping even after you’ve woken up, which can impact the accuracy of your sleep data. Overall, the realme TechLife Watch S100 is a budget-friendly sports watch with decent tracking capabilities, but it may not be the best option for those looking for accurate GPS tracking or comprehensive sleep tracking.

The Realme TechLife Watch S100 is a budget-friendly smartwatch that seeks to mimic premium smartwatches. While it boasts a wide range of features, it falls short in the fitness tracking department. Its standout features are its vibrant colour screen and notification capabilities. It’s worth considering if you’re seeking an affordable smartwatch that prioritizes aesthetics and notifications over fitness tracking. However, if you’re looking for a more comprehensive fitness tracking experience, you may need to consider other options.
